Paul Trollope is to be confirmed as the new Cardiff City boss this afternoon, report BBC Sport Wales.
The 43-year old has been working as a coach at the Bluebirds under previous manager Russell Slade for the past year.
However, the club are due to undergo a major restructure in their management scheme, with Slade moving into more of an advisory role ahead of next season.
There had been talk of an emotional return for club legend Craig Bellamy to step in, though it appears Trollope has been given the nod.
It will be a return to the top job in the dugout for the former Welsh international midfielder, who was sacked in charge of Bristol Rovers following a five-year spell there in 2010.
It is believed that there will be an announcement in the Welsh capital later this afternoon.
Slade was unable to make the playoffs this season, missing out late on to Sheffield Wednesday.
Still, the former Leyton Orient boss is widely thought to have done a solid job amid difficult financial circumstances.
Is Trollope a good option in the structure? Would you have preferred someone more exciting? What was the point in the revamp?
